Ubuntu 10.04 Review

Filed under
Ubuntu

I have been keeping an eye on Ubuntu for a long time. It has gained a lot of support and enjoys a lot more software support than many other versions of Linux which makes it an appealing option. The operating system itself has put out a lack luster performance on previous installs. In the past each time I had installed Ubuntu there was always a show stopper of some sort. I have seen everything from issues with my webcam to print related issues to problems running virtualbox. Also it would never successfully setup my nvidia card which would leave me without accelerated 3d and compiz. So after each test run I would wipe it out put Mandriva or some other distribution of Linux back on my system.

This time was different in some respects. I had no trouble with the webcam or my nvidia almost everything was good to go. I did have to install updated hplip drivers for my printer to get it to work properly.

Other than that, it has been fairly easy to setup.

Public sector organisations make a soft target for fraudsters because budget and resource shortages frequently leave hospitals short-changed when it comes to security basics like regular software patching," said Tony Rowan, Chief Security Consultant at SentinelOne. "The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.

After installing a number of alternative desktops and trying them all for a couple hours each, I finally settled on using Cinnamon until Plasma is patched and stable. Here's what I found. Read more
